MUMBAI: Bharatiya Janata Party MP Poonam Mahajan has sought demolition of a ramp near Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's bungalow in suburban Bandra, following complaints by local residents of alleged illegal construction.

"The residents of the area have for long been complaining about the chaos and traffic build up there due to the ramp. Thus, I have written a letter to Brihamumbai Municipal Corporation Commissioner Sitaram Kunte to demolish that illegal ramp. We need to look at this issue legally and lawfully follow the procedures as we are supposed to do as a government," Mahajan told PTI today.

According to the letter written on January 29, an illegal ramp constructed by "one bungalow owner" has been causing "permanent obstruction to people accessing the public road."

"The ramp is known to be used by the bungalow owner to park his private heavy motor vehicle. In view of the safety and convenience of citizens, I request you to undertake demolition of the illegal ramp on cement road," the letter stated.

The ramp has for long been in the eye of a storm, with residents alleging that it prevents them from using a part of the road and blocks the way to the stairs that lead up to Mount Mary church.
